Chairperson: Linda Collins

Any member of the Crawford County Ohio Genealogical Society who is a direct descendant of an individual(s) who settled in the area now encompassed by Crawford County on or before 31 December 1850 may apply to become a member of Pioneer Families of Crawford County Ohio. Applications and documentation for each generation must be accompanied by a non-returnable $10.00 fee, which covers all pioneers listed in that submission. This fee covers a certificate and Pioneer Families pin which the applicant will receive upon acceptance. Each supplemental application for other ancestor(s) at a later date will have a fee of $3.00. A certificate will be awarded for the supplemental application, but no additional pin will be given.

Applications for Pioneer Families will be evaluated by the lineage society chairperson and then by the Crawford County Ohio Genealogical Society’s Board of Trustees.
